MEETING HERE FEB. 10 POPULAR
Local Horticultural Society Will Be
Organized and Subjects of In
terest Discussed By Those
Mho Know Them.
From the interest being tnken in
the Hood River Fuit Growers' llor
tioulturul meetiutf, to be hold Febru
ary 10, from 9 a. in. to 12 m., find 1 to
3 p. ni., in the K. of P. hall, it is
now certain that it will be not only
very entbusiahtio, but very instruc
tive. The whole intent of the meet
ing is practical. JNo time will be
wasted in blowing about Hood Kiver,
but the meet i will get right down
to business as Boon as E. L. says the
word "Oo" and we will keep up the
interest to the end. None of the
speakers will eiiKnge in tlightrtif ora
tory, but will eoiiUne themselves to
good common sense practical talk.
hach speuker will limit his talk to five
minutes, which will give ample time
for a general discussion In which ev
ery one who has anything to say will
be atforded an opportunity.
Undoubtedly a great many are well
informed on many subjects, but per
haps not every one , Any grower who
knows it all can well allord to spend
the time to attend the meeting to help
the fellow who doesn't. Perhups you
may ask why. because if your neigh
bor don't cure for hie orchard right,
either from neglect or ig'iorance, hit
orchard is a constant menace to yours.
If your neighbor don't stump out Sun
Jose scale or control the oodlin moth,
your job is just that much harder,
and you have just that many more
wormy apples. OoDsaiuently you can
well aiford, evon from a selltsh motive
if no other, to help with advice, show
him how if he is ignotaut and stir
him to action if be is lazy. You
would be surprised to know that a
grower has bad authragnose iu bis or
chard for over two years without
knowing ho hud it or what to do for
it. Would it uot be a help to every
body in the vicinity for this niau to
clean out this orchard?
It is hoped this meeting will be the
embryo for forming an auxiliary asso
ciation to the state board of Horti
culture. Such an association would
be of such value to every grower that
it is impossible to measure its bonellts
iu dollars and cents. It U worth a
great deal to be associated with such
growers as we have here who are com
mon sense, practical people, growing
fauoy fruits. We are all working aloug
the Bame lines in the same vocation
with the same objects In view well
kept orchards, clean and fancy fruit
and high prices.
We doubt very muoh if there will
be an auxiliary association formed
that will be composed of as high class
membeiship, of as well informed fruit
growers or an association where mem
bers are more anxious to improve and
help each other.
It seems almost oertain every one
attending will learn something, and
that such a meeting will benefit every
one. and it is to be hoped that the
work of this meeting will be so inter
esting and instructive that every one
will feel good to have been iu attend
ance, aud we trust and hope that
Hood Kiver can say with pride that
she formed the best and biggest auxil
iary association in the state and the
Urist meeting wus a grand tucceiss.
A Few Comiin i Li, Facetious and Other
wise, on ilte Speakers by One
Who Ought to Know.
0. A. McCurdy will start the ball
rolling by telling you there is big
money iu bi th strawberries and ap
ples. Mao grows 'oui both big, lus
oious and red guts a big yield por
acre aud does high clans work. You
never need to look for cuIIh iu boxes
he puts up.
1 U. Church is an expert ou black
berries and raspberries and no patch
looks better than bis. He gets the
yieli aud will tell you how to go at it
if you don't know.
O. D. Woodworth was one of the
first to set chorrier' and has the larg
est orchard. He has shipped to Mex
ico, Boston aud New York, and no
one has had more experience iu this
liue than U. 1)., and be promises to
let us know all about it. .
II. 1 Davidson knows more about
cold storage than all the rest of us
pnt together, so we expect something
O. K. Castner, above all othors, is
posted on the subject of Displays.
He was manager of "Our Own Hood
Kiver Fair," and ho was in charge
of the Lewis mid Clark exhibit. He
saw the Kastt-i tiers' eyes pop out at
our big red u plcH in astonishment
and heard tl.etn ask, ''lire they wax?"
aud consequei tly knows and will tell
of the great beuelits of Hood Kiver
A. I. Mason will give a heart to
heart talk on the subject of grafting.
He is an expert on this subject, aud
nothing affords him greater pleasure
than to graft a Beu Davis to a New
town, unless it be convincing his
neighbor he ought to do the same.
Peter Mohr came hore when Mount
Hood was a hole in the ground and
apples were cheaper than spuds. To
day he has oue of the prettiest laid
out orchards in the valley. It is his
pride. He will tell you so you can
be just as proud.
D. 11. Bears, a thorough orchardist
with the latgest bearing orchard in
the valley, has bad years of experi
ence, consequently much is justly ex
pected from him.
Frank Stanton always doe" good
work and cleau cultivating. Ue is in
terested in the nursery business, and
wants to help everybody.
H. S. Ualligan wants every one to

The steamer Regulator, which has

Men leaped for their lives. The 18
carpenters and laborers employed by
the shipyard and the live deck bands

was near the tank when it exploded.
The burning oil was spattered over
him and his clothing ignited. He

WANT A VALLEY
ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING FOR IT
Project Met With Unanimous Favor
and Committees Were Appointed
to Agitate the Matter
With the enthusiasm characteristics
of the valley for progre and enter
prise, the meeting held at Artisans'
Hall Saturday for the purpose of con
sidering the proposition of building a
high school for the olty and valley
was an unqualified success.
Delegations Including members of
the school boards of Crupper, Odeli,
Barrett, Fiankton,PlneUrove and this
city were present and among all there
was no dissenting voice. While some
of the gentlemen piesent differed as
to the mode of procedure to secure
the dosired result, all were iu favor of
the project aud gave voice to their
J. W.Ackermau. State Superintend
ent of Schools, and County Superin
tendent of Schools Notf were both
present to present their views in favor
of the sohool and to demonstrate what
a great benollt it would be to the
community of Hood Kiver valley.
Prof Wiley or the Hood Kiver schools,
0.1), Thompson of the Barrett schools
and U. W. Brown of the Frankton
schools were alno present and spoke
for the proposition, although the
building or the school may mean that
they would be foroed to go elsewhere
to seek a livelihood at their vocation.
Suoh a spirit of self sacrifice as this
cannot fail to bring results, and it is
thought that many who oame to the
meeting with the idea of oposlng the
high sohool plan or at best only luke-
marm in their attitude were won to
Its support by the position taken by
these geutlemen aud also that of A. I.
Mason. Koswell Shelloy, M. K. Noble
and others who have taken no little
pride in the local schools in their
districts and have nurtured and
watched them grow with the oar
they would a pet orchard.
At the o .'nolusion ol the meeting.
however, all this feeling was eradicat
ed aud a unanimous sentiment pre
vailed that the sohool must be built.
The meeting was called to order by
F, C. Sherrlob, who was chosen as
chairman, and O. II. Vaughan as sec
retary. Mr. Sherrieb briefly stated
the nature of the meeting and called
upon Prof. Wiley to outliue its pur
pose. Prof. Wiloy did so in a clear
and sucolnot way and told of two
plans that oould be used in obtaining
the sohool. The first and the better
plan he thought was to consolidate all
the sohool districts In the valley in
one dlstrlot with a'superiutendent and
a proper stalf ofouloers and teaoheia
under him, thereby establishing a
thorough system of instruction that
oould be obtained i no other way.
To do this would require a petition
from the taxpayers of each district to
the oounty oourt asking for consoli
dation and a vote on the question at
the Juue election. The petition would
require the signatures of five taxpay
ers from dUriota of the third class
and fifty from the second class. Dis
tricts which have an enumeration of
loss than 200 are rated in the third
class, and over that iu the second
class until an enumeration of 1000 is
reached when the district becomes one
of the first olass. Pupils entering the
hiuh school would be taken from the
eighth grade of the primary schools
aud complete the rest of the oourse
in the former, which would consist of
four more grades. If the outlying
districts in the valley felt that they
did not want to give up control of
their schools to oue centralized body
the other plan was to establish a
union high school to which the va
rious districts would contribute their
pro rata share of the sohool tax for
maintenance. This, however, would
lequlre an act of the legislature. , He
also Bald that if the movement for
county division was successful a
county sohool could be erected whioh
would be maintained at the expense oi
Mr. Bherrleb then asked bupeiin-
tendeut Ackerman to spoak ou the
subject whioh that gentleman did
most Intelligently, answering objec
tions and putting to rest many of the
fears of the greater expense and also
what was considered the most objec
tionable- feature of the matter trans
portation ot pupils.
He said that a building such as was
thought of would be adequate for the
needs ot Hood Kiver valley oould be
built for iiO.000, and cited as a case,
Klamath Falls, where such a structure
bad recently been erected, lie showed
how the dlflioultles of transportation
had been oveioome at Newberg and
PHnevilie, where the system bad been
inaugurated audldemoustrated that its
oost would be less than two mills.
His talk was both business like and
enthusiastic and his answers to ob
jections to the point and satisfactory.
lo a question by JVir. btulen in con
nection with the new school tnd the
proposed new oounty, he said that if
the taxpayers would vote to establish
the school be would vote for Cascade
County, a statement whioh was greet
ed with muoh applause.
At the conclusion of Mr. Aokerman's
remarks, Mr. Mason said that he had
come to the meeting with a great deal
of pride in his heart for the little
school at Pine Grove, but tint it bad
been dissipated and he felt that the
larger school should be built, and in
reply to a statement of Mr. Acker
man's that Hood Kiver would get a
little the worst of the deal iu the
matter of taxes be took exception and
said that if it did it would be made
up in another direction. However, be
said that he was in favor of a con
solidation of the districts Instead ot
the union high school plan.
Mr. Nerf followed Mr. Mason, and
In order to show just what the enum
eration and valuation of the school
districts were produced the following

No. 4 Barrett
No. 5 Odell
